Canopy Ribbed Cowl

Canopy Ribbed Cowl

Knit 2, purl 2 rib is one of the first stitch patterns most of us learned. First you knit, then you purl, and finally you combine them in the same row. What a sense of accomplishment! And even if you’ve knit more complicated and complex projects since, a simple rib with a beautiful yarn is very satisfying.

When The Fibre Company’s Canopy Worsted arrived, I knew I wanted to knit something to show off it gorgeous color and drape. Knit 2, purl 2 was just the thing!

Canopy Worsted is a new yarn for us. It’s a blend of baby alpaca, merino wool, and silk, that feels wonderful in the skein and even better once it’s knit. The fibers are blended before they’re kettle dyed, so there’s a beautiful, subtle color variation throughout each skein.

Knitting with Canopy Worsted was a pleasure and the finished cowl is soft, warm, and has beautiful drape.
